The Tastiest Seafood in Hilton Head
While South Carolina’s sandy Hilton Head Island is best known for its pristine beaches, bicycling trails, and world-renowned golf courses, there’s no denying its genuinely extraordinary culinary scene, mainly the fresh-caught seafood delicacies. With nearly five dozen seafood restaurants in Hilton Head, you have plenty of dining options to choose from! Our team at Sunset Rentals has pieced together a five-stop seafood guide, featuring an opulent jazz club, a channel-side bar, a sleek dining room, and more!
The Jazz Corner
Admittedly, the 99-seat Jazz Corner is rarely tagged as a “seafood restaurant.” That being said, The Jazz Corner’s culinary team serves up some of the tastiest fresh and saltwater delights on the East Coast. Combine award-winning live entertainment with a mouth-watering three-course meal, complete with a pineapple soy-glazed lobster tail, grilled pear salad, and mustard and herb-crusted swordfish. Delicioso!
Skull Creek Boathouse
The Boathouse, and the neighboring Dockside Waterfront Restaurant, provides a unique glimpse into the crowd-pleasing Skull Creek dining mecca. The Skull Creek Boathouse has long been a prime example of Southern cookin’ done right, especially the $25 “Lowcountry boil,” blackened catfish, and classic Carolina shrimp and grits.
One of TripAdvisor’s top-rated seafood Hilton Head restaurants, is sleek, hip, and romantic. Its Rooftop Bar only adds an extra element of pizzazz. Patrons revere Poseidon for its eye-popping “Grand Shellfish Tower,” featuring nine types of shellfish, including mussels, middle necks, and lobster claws.
The Black Marlin Bayside Grill
Some regard The Black Marlin as “raffish,” but we truly appreciate its unique blend of simplistic sophistication, family-friendly atmosphere, and surprisingly world-class oceanic edibles. The menu features everything from a seafood-stuffed flounder smothered in a lobster cream sauce to beer-battered cod and tropical mahi-mahi. It’s not often that you find a down-to-earth eatery that serves such decadent saltwater delights.
Marleys Shrim & Burger Shack
If you’re looking for some quick and delicious made-from-scratch seafood, Marleys is the joint for you. Marleys operates out of a “shack,” where hungry patrons can simply walk up, order, and munch on the fried goodness on the well-manicured grounds. Simple pleasures, such as the hush puppies and fried green beans, are to-die-for. And we dare you to find tastier fish tacos, po’ boys, and lobster rolls in the Lowcountry.
